Awwww I want to come do a class with you wahahha - crying here big time! I love the fairies and the crepe paper looks perfect dyed like that. Good luck and have fun!


That is gorgeous, thanks for the instructions! I had to pin this!


What a fabulous tutorial and I so want one of the kits! I so want to take this class!

I alter the color of my crepe paper all the time but I've never done as much as you did (i'll have to remember that in the future if I have a big project). If you ever find you need to speed up drying you can put it in the oven, I've done that on about 200 degrees F and check it every half hour or so.

Thanks for sharing hope you are having a wonderful trip.

So very cute Karla! Hope you have fun on your trip.



Ah, so that's how you make the fringe. It has almost a rainbow look to it, nicely matching the whimsical prize ribbon.

Thank you for sharing all the detail so your work could be fully appreciated!

What a wonderful idea and such gorgeous creationss. I have to get some crepe paper!


Love this!!!! I've been having trouble getting crepe paper that doesn't disintegrate when wet, though!

I buy crepe paper at the dollar store. The trick is to let it dry completely before touching it.
